180-gram audiophile vinyl pressed at Pallas in Germany

Cut at Emil Berliner Studio and mastered from the original tapes of SWR Music!

It is particularly instructive, following the terrific studio recordings of the concertos by Mendelssohn to hear the exciting live concert recording made in Stuttgart a few years later with the chief conductor of the RSO, Hans Müller-Kray (1959) and appreciate what a phenomenal violinist Johanna Martzy was, without any thought of grandstanding or pretension, always authentic, fully emphatic and with a select, cultivated taste. — from liner notes by Christoph Schlüren

"The young Ida Haendel was technically on top form in Stuttgart in 1953-55 when she broadcast the Mendelssohn Concerto under the baton of Hans Müller-Kray, her approach, as ever, sweet-toned, fiery... always her inimitable self." — The Gramophone Magazine
